Hungry Love: Passion & Desire at the Chinese Buffet

February 8, 2018

 

I watch
you
eating
twice cooked
duck 

Your fingers
buckle
its skin 

Your
tongue
curls
a-
way
the thin,
dark
flesh 

returns
to the pile
on the tray
to kiss
the juices 

giving
each
fragile
bone 

its gentle
final
suck 

My hungry love
